Prompt: 5 minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.
Oh! goodness. I just hate timed things...too much like an exam! Help! Here we go or I'll have wasted my five minutes going on and on. Like this. Oh! dear.....Right I'm starting..... Mind blank.....Raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens....no that's someone else's favourite things. OK. Focus. Maurice, the kids, my mum and dad, my family. Venice, gondolas and pavement cafes Spain, the views, the mountains, heat, warmth. Harry Potter, Russell Watson and the barbeque, Running with Scissors, my friend Pat (RIP), wildflowers, Leanne Ellis, Nicky's charity ball, the Races, new shoes (a Dick Emery disaster), new shoes (sooooo comfy), my birthday night, Twickenham and a Lulu Guinness handbag!

Prompt: Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?
My funny, smart friend Carolyn has certainly made me think this year. Really stretched the brain cells. She's so quick and witty but it's not for that I mention her here but for the way she's made me think. Sometimes she makes me think so much it hurts! We meet for tea once a month and she's followed my progress on the new business. She's challenged me to think what I'm doing and what I'm trying to achieve. She's passed on valuable stuff she's learned in her own business and really made me focus on what I'm doing. I've so looked forward to our get togethers and she's gradually changed my perceptions on all sorts of issues. And we've had a lot of fun and laughs along the way.
